LMC Cycling Grabs Seven Victories at Lindsey Wilson College Event

COLUMBIA, Ky. --- The Lees-McRae cycling team participated in a mountain bike event hosted by Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky. 

Day one consisted of a short track and dual slalom while the final day included the cross-country and downhill.  

The team continued their season long pace in all categories by earning seven victories and 19 podium placings, which increases their season totals to 29 victories and 77 podiums.  

The team struggled through several mechanicals and flat tires, yet still found a way to succeed. Freshman Cole Kraft (Wendell, N.C.) and sophomore Samantha Croft (Auckland, New Zealand) both earned two victories in the short track and cross-country, respectively.  Remaining victories came from Phil Kmetz (Keene, N.H.) in the downhill, Tyler Mayer (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) in dual slalom and Cody Burnett (Lakeland, Fla.) in the cross-country.  "We had a few setbacks on Sunday, but the team bounced back with enough determination to cancel them out," said assistant coach PJ Noto.  

The cycling team wraps up its regular season at Clemson University this weekend at the SECCC Conference Championship.  

The Bobcats are leading the overall team omnium in Division I by 297 points over second place Georgia Tech, while Brevard College sits in third, Lindsey Wilson College is fourth and Clemson is fifth.  Next week head coach Tim Hall will announce the starting roster for the collegiate national championship to be held in Showshoe, W. Va.
